yepp i double checked with Wikipedia

you can also double check cuz when you turn the distributor it will either die down or idol up. in which case advance run better retard running normal or worse not sure.

You should quit life and and go be a Eskimo in Alaska to avoid paying taxes

sorry for miss information i got confused but either way u can do it by ear. one way will speed the motor up " advance " the other will slow it down " retard"

lol that was too funny. just shows ya you cant trust wickapieda.

but yes since the rotor spins counter clockwise to retard the timing (which means that the stroke will be further in its rotation before the spark plug sparks),then you would turn the distrubitor counter clockwise to make it take longer for the rotor to cross with points. but please do not mess with your timing without a timing light the slightest movement will throw it off.
